Supposedly Fergie lost 8 of his first 28, so Moyes is doing better with 8 of 32.
What annoys me is the fans and pundits declaring he failing because it is the same squad who won the title by 11 points last season. It quite clearly isn't the same squad, they are all a year older and that's significant given the age of players like Vidic, Ferdinand and Giggs.
Ferguson never started with a championship winning team, Moyes did.
they may be a year older, however none of this should have come to Moyes as a shock, it's not like he was brought in last minute as an emergency replacement.
He was well aware of the age of Giggs, Vidic etc. However he failed to come up with solutions other than the big haired buffoon.
In simplest terms, Man Utd have been batting above their status of a team for several seasons, the reason is that Ferguson was THAT good a man-manager. Now they've got Moyes, trying new things, new tactics, new training and new man-management, Utd are playing as their squad should.... Which is... average.
